6:31pm
magazines and more school security specifically classroom doors that can be locked from the inside. another possible mass murder averted. police say 30-year-old james was planning an attack at the university of central florida in orlando. police believe the business student pulled the fire alarm just after midnight in a large dorm to lure all of the students in the open but a student noticed the gun and called 911. the suspect ended up killing himself. in his dorm room they found two guns, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and several explosive devices. the motive is still unclear tonight. when you think about retirement, what do you envision? maybe palm trees, the pacific coast, maybe in the desert. according to a new report you would be foolish to retire around here. >> recently ranked the ten worst places to retire and san francisco and san jose made that
6:32pm
dubious list. tonight's reality check sam brock took a look. >> it doesn't seem like that bad of a place to live. sticker shock might help explain the rankings. the median home price is about $740,000. for san francisco it is closer to 800,000. when you make decisions as a consumer do you look at the price or do you consider quality and longevity and your ability to pay. in a picture perfect world we probably all retire in a place like this. san francisco would sure be nice or maybe san jose unless you consult u.s. news and world report which listed both cities on its annual list of ten worst places to retire. how do these bay area gems earn such a dubious distinction? a very high cost of living,
6:33pm
expensive housing and california taxes. >> you can go ski in the mountains, you have the ocean and so many things. if you are looking for an inexpensive destination i'm sure topeka, kansas is better. >> reporter: he says quality of life factors into the retirement equation. let's look at facts. the bay area is known for outdoor enthusiasts, exercisers, bike riders. maybe the lifestyle is paying off. california is ranked third in the country in life expectancy at 80.4 years. and the bay area medical services are considered elite by the same publication u.s. news and world report that compiled the retirement list. ucsf was ranked in the highest echelon in the country. what about the pesky taxes and high costs of living?
6:34pm
>> i don't feel like it is a straw that is breaking the camel's back. >> reporter: a financial adviser based out of san francisco who doesn't see many clients who avoid california because of taxes. he says people who move to california do so largely for the lifestyle and recoup the money by not having to travel for hiking and beach trips. >> what are you used to? if you are used to a lower cost structure someplace else it may be difficult to come here. the people of means can afford to live here and they say it is nice here. there is a reason i came to california or i want to stay in california. >> and the u.s. news and world report highlights housing to rent and own is really, really expensive but omits the obvious that people don't make
6:35pm
retirement decisions based solely on economic factors and living in the bay area is still reasonable for many folks in state. just five years ago the same report listed san francisco as one of the best places to retire. has that much changed since then? the claim is false. that's today's reality check. san francisco is short on the fundraising goal to cover the cost for the america's cup race but says all is not lost. the city is asking to help pay for the race. an online petition was created and it has more than 1,300 signatures encouraging elson to pay the difference. he agrees the city won't have to tap into tax incomes to help pay for the race. you will be able to sail through the streets of san francisco on a free shared bike. beginning in august san francisco, san jose and three peninsula cities will be part of a $7 million bike sharing

6:43pm
throughout santa rosa down to san jose. current temperatures are dropping with wide spread 60s. let's get you outside live with the sky camera on this monday. pulling in plenty of clouds from the south. san francisco a mix, low level clouds creating, of course, cloudy conditions at the coast. you look above about 2,000 feet and we are noting blue sky. that is going to be quickly going away. what we have happening is a huge tap of subtropical moisture. by all accounts this would normally produce 1 to 2 inches of rainfall. we are lacking uplift in the atmosphere. we are going to get rain but it is not going to be the strongest storm. it is one of the driest calendar starts to the year here from january to date. right now at the coast line we are finding the cloud cover that will stick for tomorrow with
6:44pm
wide spread 60 and see 50s and 60s back to the coast as we continue throughout tuesday and wednesday. winds from about 15 to 25 miles per hour. we will get rain in here, accumulating rain by tuesday night and showers lingering into wednesday. your timeline has most of us dry for tomorrow morning. even though our model is not showing it i do not think we can't rule out a few areas of drizzle at the coast line and the north bay for tomorrow morning. as we head throughout the day look to pull out the umbrellas. 5:00, 6:00 and 7:00 the chance of showers increase. we will save some of the heavier bouts of rainfall for overnight hours on wednesday. .05 inch to .5 inch. in the south bay trace amounts
6:45pm
to maybe .1 inch. up towards the north bay from .25 to .5 inch. it is a range of where those totals could fall. expect to see snow from 2 to 7 inches. most of the snow will start above 6,000 feet. do expect winter conditions up to the sierra. 44 in concord. 47 in san jose. warmer start with the cloud cover. by the afternoon right where we should be. 65 in san jose. 65 in los gatos. 59 in santa cruz. it will be slightly warmer in walnut creek. temperatures close to 70 and back here for san francisco we will stay at 60. 64 in santa rosa. 68 in pacifica. on the three day forecast once
6:46pm
we get over wednesday we will have dry weather here thursday and will continue for the upcoming weekend as we head into friday, saturday and sunday. sunny skies will stay with us and temperatures will rebound back into the mid 70s. by the way, spring does start on wednesday so we get out of winter and now we head into spring. winter temperatures return and also winter rain. >> just like to keep you on your toes. >> mother nature is shaking us around. nchl nchl . a lot of baseball fans worried about the weather. a lot of flag waving tonight. the park is opening the semi-finals of the world baseball classic. here is joe rosato, jr. >> reporter: you will hear baseball called the great american past time. as the world baseball classic descends on the bay area it is strictly an international
6:47pm
affair. >> we came from new york to support our team. >> reporter: last night it was japan and puerto ricoey at the semi-finals. tonight the netherlands squares off with the dominican republic. >> surprise to see your team play every four years. what can you say? it is worth it. >> reporter: it is not your typical baseball crowd. there were news crews from around the world. inside the giants dugout store orange and black was sharing space. >> it is different from major league because you have the flags going and the horns going. it is kind of the soccer baseball scene. >> reporter: ticts behind home plate were going for $150 while bleacher seats were recently reduced for just $5. >> got them for $5 in the bleachers. >> reporter: especially when you
6:48pm
consider parking meters were going for $7 an hour during game time. >> we are probably going to have to throw it into the loss. >> reporter: even though the u.s. was eliminated, major league baseball says the games have been a success even in the soccer loving nations. >> international fans who watch baseball and celebrate baseball in a different way. and when national pride is on the line there is a whole other level of excitement and enthusiasm. >> reporter: here is an outfit you won't see at a giants game. >> this is typical dutch. at the recent semifinal we wear something like this. >> reporter: netherlands fans wore orange. dominican republic fans wore blue. tomorrow night's final with no red, white and blue in sight. joe rosato, jr., nbc bay area news. big party at the ballpark

6:50pm
>> i think they are pretty excited. it is a close to home game. i expect a lot of students and alumni. i am happy. >> getting to stay close to home and the same for unlv, makes so much sense to me to have your people, your fans, your people that followed you all year long to be able to be involved potentially with the game. that makes it more fun for everybody. how about the ladies? cal is representing there, as well. a two seed in the spokane region of the ncaa women's tournament. the bears will play fresno state in lubbock saturday 1:20 local time. cal could find itself on a collision course with a bay area area because the cardinals will take on six team seeded tulsa at
